Dear UAV people, I read an introduction is much appreciated so here I go..I'll try to keep it short;-) I'm considereing buying an Phantom 4 in a few weeks.. I am someone that tries to get back in his old skill- and toolset and I am currently looking for work. I graduated as a Multimedia designer a long time ago.. (but in this galaxy). I worked as a 3D modeler on computer games, virtual reality- and video presentations and once in a while I still work on filmfestival shorts as a volunteer doing FX, titles, illustrations..animations. At some point it was necesary to adapt to the situation and I got into software testing and skilled support. But because the IT sector, where I worked in the last couple of years, makes me die from the inside out I am currently persuing the wish to make coorporate video productions with VR and 360 initiatives on the side. I am someone with ideas and I need to place my creativity somewhere. There are some plans on the drawing board to create a decent portfolio where I can show-off beautifull shot edits and 360 applications to get my first paying customer The first few will have te be done for free :-S. I am well aware of the potential of the chosen equipment and the potential and prices of the more professional stuff.. this is something for later or rent. I need to start very modest with a DSLR, a Phantom4 and a Gear 360. I have some good network connections around me in the field (I will definately need a sound guy) so I hope these ingredients and my 300% motivation can make this all work. The alternative is save money but certain death..(No offence, I'm just not an IT man). Are there any like minded souls around here..maybe with some experience on the choices that are up ahead? And considering a small start budget I wonder if my assumption about the P4's possabilities to deliver semi pro footage is correct? Thnx and Regards, Vincent
Hey everyone My name is Richy and I live in The Netherlands. Last week I was given my first drone as a present, a Quanum Nova. Eager to try it out I just winged it and broke the landing gear; not my prettiest moment. I will duct tape it together again and read up on your forum and guides first before trying again. The problem I had though when I first tried to get the Nova into the air was that it would flip over as soon as I hit the throttle. I already found it you need to give it a bit more welly however that then caused it to just bugger off and fly away. I tried to land it gently, but as said before that did not go as planned. In the meanwhile I have taken a look at Mission Planner, and I will do a complete recalibration of the drone and of the controls. I'm looking forward to some better weather here on continental Europe before trying again and then hopefully getting the Nova at least properly airborne without me breaking it again. Kind regards Richy
